Our goal for this experiment is to determine the authenticity of Korean cosmetic company claims of the use of snail slime within their products. Snail mucus, also known as snail filtrate, is advertised for its anti-aging properties. The snail slime is said to be harvested from domesticated common garden snails (Cornu aspersum). The products we plan on using claim to contain as much as 96% and 80%, respectively, snail secretion filtrate, which should provide ample amounts of DNA to sequence. In addition, we will be conducting tests on control samples, mucus from live snails, as a comparison.
